Injectable fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. With over 3 million injections performed each year, it’s no surprise that more people than ever have considered this treatment for their own skin issues.

What You Should Know About Injectable Fillers

Injectable fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed today. They can be used to treat signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and deep nasolabial folds (lines that run from your nose down toward your mouth). Injectable fillers can also eliminate acne scars, smooth out uneven skin texture or volume loss in the cheeks, correct uneven jawline definition, or correct volume loss from lipo suctioning the chin area or cheekbones.

There are several different types of injectable fillers available today; each type has its own unique benefits and drawbacks so it’s important to understand what you’re getting into before undergoing any type of procedure.

There are a number of different types of injectable fillers available, each with its own unique properties and characteristics. These include:

  • Hyaluronic acid fillers
  • Collagen fillers
  • Dermal filler alternatives
  • Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (HA)

The Procedure is Safe, Simple, and Quick

Most patients say that the procedure was not painful at all, but some people may experience mild discomfort. Injectable fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the skin. The hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the skin to give it volume and fullness. The procedure takes just a few minutes and can be performed on most areas of the face and body. You will likely experience mild swelling and redness after the injections, which will subside over several days or weeks.
